  4. Bat Scoping & Bat Emergence/Re-Entry Survey, Halifax, HX4

An architectural client of JCA’s commissioned us to carry out a bat scoping survey which proved to have high potential for supporting roosting bat species therefore bat emergence and re-entry surveys were required at the mill complex in Halifax which was being converted into a hotel.

Having conducted three emergence/re-entry surveys two Common Pipistrelle bats (Pipistrelle pipistrellus) were seen entering a gap in the stonework in the tower and a Satellite roost was determined to be present. In addition, a nesting bird survey was also carried out and after all surveys had been carried out it was advised that a Biodiversity Mitigation and Enhancement Plan should be designed by JCA based on the planning conditions set out by Calderdale Planning Authority.
